Visible love

I met Anton and Oksana a few months ago, and as I heard more of their story I was intriqued to know more. I thought they were such a sweet couple, so and I asked them If I could take some engagement photos of them. It had been a while since I'd done pictures for anyone and I was feeling a bit rusty and out of practice, but I really wanted to get back into it, and thought this was a great opportunity.

They were excited when I asked them and  then I found out that Anton is also a very good photographer and an amazing digital artist (one of his images was just chosen for a book title)....but hey no pressure! I had to laugh.... it figures!
They had forecasted rain for the weekend and I was so hoping for a sunny day which is possible in Dublin, as it turns out the day was gorgeous, fantastic autumn colors were apparent everywhere in St Stevens Green. Anton and Oksana were perfect, I love it when couples enjoy  having their pictures taken, it makes my job so much easier! It was an honor and a pleasure to make their love visible.

La brea ata ann "It's a lovely day" in Gaelic

These were taken in or around Glendalough Gleann Dá Loch Co Wicklow, a monoastic site which dates back to the 6th century. Talk about old! 

Sometimes words escape me, especially when writing blog posts. Since a picture is worth a thousand words here are 8, feel free to add your own words. One small word of advice, if you ever make it  to Ireland do try the Salmon. It is heavenly here and will never let you down!
